    Trying to Identify tribe


      I am trying to identify the tribe my gggrandmother was from. I have a rough idea of where she was from, but no records.  I did find a birth certificate for her daughter which lists the daughter as “Indian and white” so I believe she was Native. She died in 1867 in Iowa.  We do not know the names of her parents or any other relatives.  She appears on a census in Canada in 1851.


      Do I write to the tribes From where she possibly lived and ask them if she was a member? Is this the best way? I am not trying to pursue enrollment, I just want to solve a family puzzle.
